Mitsubishi Motors Announces Industry-Leading New Work-From-Home Policy

While new North American headquarters remains open, new policy requires no minimum number of days in the office

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) today announced a new work-from-home policy that affords flexibility to employees whose jobs can be performed from home, with no required minimum number of days in the office, a benefit more common among cutting-edge technology companies than automotive brands. This announcement comes as the company reports strong sales across the first quarter of 2022 and builds on its momentum as the fastest-growing, non-luxury brand in the industry.

"Our new work from home policy comes down to one thing: tremendous trust in our employee team," said recently appointed MMNA CEO Mark Chaffin. "Over the last two years, our employees have risen to the challenges of a global pandemic and historic supply chain disruptions, and they've propelled the brand to record-breaking sales success. They've demonstrated they can do it all, while working from their home and company offices. That commitment should be rewarded with confidence and flexibility, and today, that's what we're doing."

In mid-2019, MMNA relocated its operations from Cypress, Calif. to Franklin, Tenn., just outside of Nashville, in a move to reinvent every aspect of the brand. In April 2020, its new-from-the-ground-up, state-of-the-art North American headquarters opened, featuring open-and-airy, sunlit workspaces. In spite of the pandemic, MMNA hired more than 150 new team members, and the office remained open for those who wished to come in, providing they followed strict COVID protocols.  

Although this new policy will allow employees to choose to continue working from home, MMNA will continue its commitment to investing, volunteering and hiring locally in the communities where its offices are located. 

"If you're looking for an inclusive company, with a bright future, that respects you as an individual and as a professional, I can think of no better place than Mitsubishi Motors. One of our corporate values is 'People First,' and we are putting that value into action in every facet of the employee experience." said Chaffin.
